    The classic canon of Western civilization meets the artists and illustrators who have remade reading in the last years of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first century in Russ Kick’s magisterial, three-volume, full-color Graphic Canon. In the first anthology of its kind in comics history, Russ Kick presents some of the artists and illustrators, both known and unknown, who have begun to redefine literature for a new century. Among these artists are Zak Smith (Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon), Sharon Rudahl (Three Tang poems: Wang Han, Cui Hu, and Li Bai), Milton Knight (“Poker!” by Zora Neale Hurston), and Frank M. Hansen (”If-” by Rudyard Kipling).

    Join these amazing artists alongside Russ Kick in a panel discussion and presentation about art, literature, and what happened when these two worlds collide.
